from the star of the obama family, michelle obama. you know, this is just like a relay and you start off with the fastest person. so i'm going to be at home and i'm going to be watching it with our girls. and i am going to try not to let them see their daddy cry. because when michelle starts talking, i start getting all misty. >> let's go to our white house correspondent brianna keilar. she's downstairs here in the convention at the time warner cable. what else do we expect the first lady to say tonight? >> wolf, we're really expecting her to stay somewhat on message when it comes to what president obama's campaign is all about. that he's making decisions putting the middle class first. but she's going to be doing it. a source close to her tells me from a very personal place. she'll obviously talk about herself is the person who knows him best, around him at very pivotal moments and she'll talk about how she's seen him make difficult decisions, whether it be health care reform or over the auto bailout. and that she has seen him make these decisions putting the middle class first. tha
to what people are expecting from the first lady michelle obama's speech tonight. >> look, that is part of the reason for the excitement because first of all, have you these people and the configuration as you can see behind me, i'm above the podium which is a really great vantage point. as you can see, people are -- very, few people, very few delegations are actually on the floor. it is a bowl. they are up and around on the sides. that is, i think, making it sound a lot larger, louder, than it actually might be. it is very loud. they are very excited and they are not all here yet. there are a lot of empty seats. typically people are at dinner now but will be here in time for the keynote address. people are excited to hear castro the keynote speaker, but principally this is michelle obama's night. she is already throughout the campaign. they sent sought an e-mail a half hour ago asking people to text and send in $3 donations in advance of her speech. she told ryan seacrest today on his radio show she had not watched ann romney's speech and came here briefly to look at the stage and look
campaign captured by firstç lady michele obamaand we'll bailiff you tt with -- bring you that with other speeds. >san antonio mayor julio castro plus other major speeches tonight. on-line you can find our 24 hour live stream coverage events inside and outside the hall. >> ifill: let's get started right down to the floor to ray suarez who will be with us tonight and the rest of the conventions. ray suare. >> suarez: we will hear from senate majority leader harry reid of november and house minority leader nancy pelosi of california. later on there will be video tributes, the first to fermenter president jimmy carter and one to the late senator edward kennedy of massachusetts. and of course much later tonight as judy mentioned, the keynote from the 37 year old mayor of san antonio texas, hoolian julit trocastroand michelle obama, tht lady of the united states. >> woodruff: mark shields and draifd brooks were with us last weak in tampa and they are here with us in charlotte. what does this line up tonight say to you what the democrats, what barack obama wants to accomplish
was good. michelle obama's speech was good. markell rubio's speech -- marco rubio's speech last week was good. going back and forth, trying to decide which way i will leave. i think it will come down to -- you can have a talking point and you can have these things you're going to do and say you are going to do all you want. it will come down to leadership. the bottom line for me as that barack obama had the control congress his first two years, he got nothing but his own way to do what he wanted to do. i am sorry. he rammed everything three. he did it in a matter of fact way and lost respect of his fellow constituents. the last two years with the republicans are getting a bad rep, beating not want to work with someone like that. >> levy dumping in -- let me jump in on that. let's go back to the floor. >> you probably could get a greater distance -- and that it greater distance between guam of florida. we begin with the mayor of riviera speech, florida. your thoughts? >> with the speech president clinton and left side of michelle, we are going to vote for president obama. how can you
: hi. i watched the speeches last night. i was pretty disgusted about it, how michelle obama was talking about her husband was going to help everybody, we are going to give money for people to go to school. it just seems like everybody is just waiting for handouts from them. , that's great that we want to help everybody, but the reality is our country is almost bankrupt. we are already. where are they going to get all this money to hand out to everybody? guest: well, the issue of the economy and government spending is a difficult one. that is one of the major dividers between the two campaigns. who -- where does the investment and the growth need to come from? does it come from the bottom up or the top down? that is a basic thing that voters are going to have to decide. but i think you also tapped into sentiments that are out there. a lot of people are tired of hearing more of what they may perceive as the same. i think that is part of the enthusiasm gap. people have forgotten that the government is for the people and that we ultimately have a choice. i always told my student
're going to see ann romney, we're going to see michelle obama as two of the most effective figures in this campaign. >> not two of the most, the two most effective campaigners in both campaigns. i don't think there's any question about that. michelle obama will lead it off next week in charlotte for her husband. i happen to believe, and you know the kind of family in which i have been raised, i'm living with all women, and i have been witness to this both in my wife and my daughters and now my grand daughters, i think this is the century of women. i really do believe that. >> hooray! >> there's going to be more gains made by more women across every part of our lives. cultural, political, and economic. and i think that there is even among some republican women out there, that that party doesn't quite buy into that yet. i mean, there are extraordinary achievements made by nikki haley and condi rice and everyone else. but the real issue on this campaign, for women, will be will social issues, or economic issues, will one trump the other? because the social issues are very important to
antonio mayor jewulian castro a will wrap up with a speech by first lady michelle obama. tomorrow will include speeches by massachusetts senate candidate elizabeth warren and former president bill clinton followed by the delegate roll call to nominate president obama for a second term. >> did you see the article in politico about how elizabeth warren is a star here but is having trouble gaining traction in massachusetts. mike, you said it a long time ago, she is a national star for the democratic party but in her own state she's trailing by 5 points and there a lot of democrats that always vote democrat that like brown. they say he's one of us, he's what we would say in the south a good ol' boy. he's not exactly good ol' boy but he talks like those guys who call into boston radio stations bitching about the red sox. that's his persona. i don't know if that's really him but he's got it now. >> again, these two guys can tell you, maybe buttress this point of view, massachusetts is more than cambridge and beacon hill. it's a very moderate state once you get past 128, the outer beltwa
sent out the first lady, michelle obama campaigning as hard as he is. she was down in greenville, north carolina, yesterday. first of all saying it's forward, not backward. >> we're going to turn around and go back to the same politics that got us into the hole in the first place? are we going to just sit back and watch everything we've worked for and fought for to just slip away? >> no! >> bill: she's a good campaigner. >> she's a good campaigner and she's in fine fetel. she really is. she is fighting for this gig. >> bill: that speech that she gave in charlotte -- >> it was really, really powerful! >> bill: very much. >> finest thing she's ever done. >> bill: remember in 2008, she was reluctant to join the battle. now she's a happy warrior out there. >> you almost think she likes her job. >> bill: a big asset i think. >> huge asset. her approval ratings are sky high. far higher than his which are not bad. but she's incredibly popular. incredibly popular. with everybody i think really except with the

[applause] i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i probably nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party -- proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. in tampa a few days ago we heard a lot of talk about how the president and the democrats do not believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everyone to bea dependet now on the government, how bad we are on the economy. this alternative universe says that everyone of us in this room who amounts to anything, we are all completely self made. one of the greatest german the democratic party ever had, bob strauss and -- which is rated one of the greatest democrat, bob strauss says every american wants you to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself, but he admitted it ain't so. we democrats think the country works better with real opportunities. with business and government working together to promote growth and proudly share prosperity. we believe we are all in this together is a far better philosophy than we are

of fell flat on the heels of michelle obama's speech but, of course, david axelrod and campaign aides have done the same thing saying they didn't think they were going to get much of a bounce out of the convention anyway. on the heels of these two conventions, we are nowhere different than where we were before the convention, very even going into the debates. we'll have a very level playing field on october 3rd. >> heather: president obama was given a heads-up as to what this jobs report would be prior to his speech which is normal. he knew it was coming. he is campaigning today in florida, a state with the highest elderly population and unemployment rate of 8.8%. there is four key battleground states where the unemployment elevated above the national average. we mentioned florida, in nevada, 12%, north carolina, where they had the dnc. 9.9%. michigan, 9%. 735 delegates up for grabs among those states. how does the obama campaign win them over with job reports like friday's? >> what they are doing is running a very specific state by state campaign. so when you talk about michigan, presiden

is one that i will not spend as much time saying it is not fair for you to report obama is ahead. i would more likely say to you that one of the reasons obama is ahead in these polls is because the news media is asking him questions about tucking michele in at night instead of asking questions about why his administration is bumbling security in libya -- questions about tucking michelle in at night. we have news media celebrating obama as some sort of celebrity instead of treating him like the president of united states. host: back to the phones and our conversation with tim graham, director of media analysis at the media research center. you are on the "washington journal." caller: i just would like to impress on the people who are listening to this to educate yourselves, please. this man and fox news run a manipulative, mind-control tactic, and that is why there is almost nothing truthful that comes from fox news. host: how is the reporting that comes from fox news different than the reporting that comes from cnn or msnbc? caller: it is another tactic. host: by whom? caller: by you. you
